Yeah. I know I will have to do some simple USB wire splicing to make it work. But I don't expect to do any soldering of components; just the wiring only.

there are 2 ways to create a easy connector:

1= soldering the cables together.
2= reconnecting the cables to each other usign a new plug. (1$ on ebay {for 10-?? pieces})

option 2= using the normal usb cable.
(this is not reccomanded.)

as for touch this could not work on android, due driver issues, (you need to know linux programming/java coding to write a app that allows usb-touchs screen)

if you have 4x4 cm space left, you can add a fan to it, (power it trough usb) this way you have extra cooling to prevent overheating

2GB ddr2 400mhz ram
Realtek RTL8188SU
(not the 3G version)
hdd cooler as extra cooling

Thats the plan. USB 2.0 wiring is very standard, so I will just match the wire colors.

I realize that is a possibility. That's the reason I don't want to solder anything to the motherboard permanently. However, I will be running Remix Beta (based on Lollipop as part of the Android x86 project), which has some support for many touchscreen drivers. So there's a good chance it will work. But if it doesn't, then I can always remove it and use the extra mini PCI-E for something else.

I was thinking about doing that with a 5v mini fan wired into the extra unused USB header on the dual USB mini PCI-E card. But I don't know where I would vent the fan out. The chassis doesn't appear to have a good location for that.

you can also use a 12V fan those work fine on 5V.
5V fans could not work consitantly on a usb plug due usb giving 4,8-5,2 V

with a 12V you have less noticable decrease in airflow
